Students who participate in a study abroad program sponsored by other departments should be aware of the following:
Before you go...
If you are not studying abroad in one of our department-sponsored programs, please see the Adviser, Suzanna Martínez (firstname.lastname@example.org) preferably a month in advance. Note that credit is granted for work done at a regionally-accredited foreign or US university or college only. Credit is not granted for work done at language schools/institutes/academies. Also note that total credits are assigned using the following ratios, regardless of the number of credits recommended by the study abroad program or IPE:
Language/grammar/conversation courses: 80 classroom hours=6 credits
Content courses, such as literary and cultural studies: 10 classroom hours=1 credit
When you return...
If you were concurrently enrolled at the UW while abroad, you will need to meet with an IPE Adviser (Schmitz Hall 459) before your credits can be processed by the Spanish Department. Once you have a Credit Evaluation Form, please assemble all of your study abroad materials, including copies of your syllabi, study abroad transcript, and coursework; and drop them off in Suzanna Martínez' inbox in Padelford C-104. You should allow two weeks for the evaluation to be completed, and will receive an email when your materials are ready for pick up.
